This game will allow the use of shields; something rarely found on a paintball field. Vikings fight by forming Shield Walls and I expect nothing less in this game. Hitting the shield won't put you out; a hit anywhere else on you or your gear and you're taking a walk. Shield size will be limited to trashcan lid size; say 24-26 inches. Anything larger will need a trim job before play begins. The Viking shields would be round traditionally and the English were oblong. I would like to stay with those shapes to help with player identification. I will get back to you with background colors for English and Viking shields. This is just to get you thinking about the possibilities.
Play for the English or Vikings and let it all hang out! The English, or more appropriately the Anglo-Saxon conflict with the Viking invaders lasted for many, many years. This event will only reflect one short conflict of the onslaught that shaped Europe but it will be as intense as anything you have ever done; I promise. For those that have been to one of my games that is a promise backed by everything I do. My games will get your adrenaline flowing, your feet will be sore and you'll have one heck of a grin on your face. Ask any of the hundreds of players that have attended one of my events. The posts following this opening over the next few days will be full of teams that have been there and done that. They will back my statements here; this is not boasting, it is simple truth. I am a paintball player and write games that I would want to play. I put a lot of work into making meaningful missions, real props that tie to the missions and you have my word that there will be plenty of players and paint flying to fulfill your need to trade more than a few balls with other players.
You will also get the priviledge of knowing, close to real time, what the score is throughout the game.
